I haven’t seen a website graduate in the “old system” so I don’t know how it really worked before, but I’m curious how it works now.
I don’t know when is the exact point when a website is considered as graduated:

  • when Beta is removed from the title?
  • when the new moderator election starts?
  • when the moderator election ends?
  • when the website gets a new design?
  • other ... please specify.

On Area 51, Magento is still listed as Public Beta, while its first election has ended.

  • Ok. I get it, you don't like the question, but can I get a reason for the downvotes?

    If you've been a pro temp moderator then you should know how the voting works on Meta sites.

  • @slugster. Apparently I was a bad temp, because I don't know how it works. I would still like an explanation though.

  • @ShadowWizard. Fair enough. I edited the post and removed the 'side-question'.

  • Here's an old post that goes into it a bit - it is talking about the differences between SO and Meta.SO. While this meta site does carry its own individual reputation, it's still a meta. Down votes can mean your question/discussion is perfectly fine, but people disagree with you. In any case, I believe the answer that's been tendered before is: a site is graduated when the CM(s) have made the decision and the elected mods have been appointed. Site design then follows at some point when design resources permit.

    Thanks :) I'll leave it as a comment for now though because I can't (easily/quickly) dig out the relevant reference to validate what I said. In the mean time this (loooong read) and this might be helpful.
